In today's post I decided to tone down the color and mood of my outfit. Back in the 90's I wore so much black. It was hard to see the clothes in my closet because mostly dark clothing hung on the rod. Last year I was at a birthday party of a friend and I noticed the room was divided into two groups. Younger women wearing colors and older women wearing black. I do love black, but when I saw this division of color by age I knew I wanted to add some brighter hues and patterns to my wardrobe.
It is with this outfit of darks, I wear as an old friend, that lends me the ability to look at the lens. Some of you have been asking me why I look away from the camera. For a somewhat shy person looking at the lens leaves me feeling vulnerable. I promised myself I'd try look straight into the lens for some pictures to say hello with my eyes. Blogging is much more than just clothes for me. I've have become fond of many of you and I truly enjoy sharing these weekly posts.
